As restaurants in the Valley of the Sun goes, you simply can’t beat the offerings of our Gilbert location. The first thing people often notice as they drive by is how perfectly our design fits with Arizona’s desert landscape, while still being able to stand out in a crowd. Since we’re the eastern-most Black Bear Diner in the valley, visitors from all across the U.S. and even our friends from Canada stop by for a tasty meal on their way to the Superstition Mountains, Salt River, and our innumerable off-road areas. Inside the diner, you’ll find a beautifully decorated decor that will make your dining experience extra special. Our team is the very best around and will do whatever it takes to make sure that every single customer leaves with a smile.
